Understanding the Need for Supporting Culturally Responsive Faculty
Session Time and Location
As the student populations of predominately White institutions of higher education around the world progressively diversify, there is a growing need for educators to establish inclusive academic environments. Educators can create inclusive classrooms through the adoption of a culturally responsive pedagogy. Many educators become culturally responsive to effectively instruct and mentor learners from other cultures; however, they often become frustrated without proper support from others, including educational developers. This workshop will help educational developers understand the needs of culturally responsive professors, as well as generate ideas on how they may provide such educators with support and professional development.
